AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hello everyone,

I've inserted a satellite image into my 3d model and scaled it to fit properly in the orientation. When I render, the image is not there. Does anyone know an easy way to render with a satellite image to scale?

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

Tom, did you apply the map as a decal to a 3d object first? 

I did, but it doesn't render the proper scale of the photo on the 3d object. If I insert the satellite image as a raster image reference and scale the image, it works perfectly to view the model overlay. But attaching the graphic to the exact size of the scaled image it doesn't keep the scale factor for some reason......... I guess I could always render the model and use photoshop to put the graphic underlay in. Just thought an easier method might be available.

The way you described should work just fine. I haven't had or heard of a problems like yours. If you would like to upload the image, I'll try it here on my end for you.

Do you try to make a material with your image and make a 3d face ground plane, scale the material same dim like your 3d face then apply.

Accustudio

I know this is hard to believe, but Accustudio is over 20 years old. It has been quiet for a couple of years now at the site. I'm looking to hand it off to the next generation. Is there anyone interested in working on the site and eventually taking over the ownership of it?See More

"Yes, it will be different.  Typing arstudio should be roughly the same operation as "running a quick test render"-- it may be a little slower, and the first time you type it, it will certainly be slower (it was before). …"

Peter Milner replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio texture editing
"Okay. Another question on textures: In nXt you can layer different textures and bump maps to create a more complex material. For example, the Oak veneer material (image attached) uses two bump maps: one for the grain and one for the flecks. In…"
